OnlyFans mistakenly reveal Meta Executives that took bribe

In a court document, OnlyFans’ lawyers mistakenly revealed the Meta executives who allegedly took bribes to block competitors on Instagram by flagging their content as terrorism.

The owner of OnlyFans, Fenix International Limited, accidentally filed a court document that failed to redact the names of Meta employees, including Nick Clegg (Meta’s vice president of global policy), Nicola Mendelsohn (vice president of the global business team), and Cristian Perrella (Meta’s European safety director).

OnlyFans’ second attempt to have the lawsuit dismissed by the court allegedly shows that Fenix transferred money to Clegg, Mendelsohn and Perrella, which implies that these transfers provided evidence that the Meta employees accepted bribes.

A spokesman for OnlyFans said: “OnlyFans categorically denies all allegations and is aware of no evidence to support them.” The spokesperson also mentioned OnlyFans’ motion to dismiss, emphasizing that “plaintiffs’ claims are not based on any plausible allegations or theories, but rather on implausible speculation and unwarranted deductions.”

Fenix also appeared to imply that rival adult entertainers claiming losses from the alleged bribery may have simply lost revenue as OnlyFans’ popularity grew due to their failure to use a more successful platform.
